Atari 2600: Elk Attack




Elk Attack is an unreleased port of the obscure Taito arcade game Electric Yo-Yo! Programmer Mark Hahn named the game Elk Attack as a joke, and probably would have changed the name had it been published.

Elk Attack is a Pac-Man type game but without a maze. You control a Yo-Yo type machine, which must use its string to latch onto and destroy all the colored blocks on the screen. Along the way you'll encounter strange worm like creatures, which will attempt to disrupt your Yo-Yo. To help you fight the worms there are power squares scattered around the board which when grabbed will render your Yo-Yo temporarily invincible and increase your speed. Unlike Pac-Man, touching a worm while invincible will only net you points, and will not destroy it. Because of this its best to just go about your business and clear the maze instead of hunting down the worms.
